Expert System For Supervision Of Mineral Flotation Cells
Flotation Mechanism Improving circuit control starts with a flotation mechanism, the heart of the flotation cell. Currently across the entire installed base, almost all flotation machines have been installed with a fixed speed. The design speed is not necessarily the optimum metallurgical speed, and the optimum speed in the first few roughers, where the ore is fast floating and easily recovered, could be very different from farther down the circuit. In the scavengers, where the ore is slow floating, this may have a different particle size distribution and may be treated differently.
